In Memory Of

Vishnu Murthy

May 2001 — September 2021

Co-Founder and Honorary CEO

University of Michigan Engineering B.S. Computer Science; Thomas Jefferson Sci/Tech Class of 2019

Vishnu Murthy was an undergraduate student at the University of Michigan studying Computer Science & Data Science in the College of Engineering. He graduated from TJHSST in 2019. Vishnu was a software engineer at Amazon Web Services.


Vishnu had over 4 years of tutoring under his belt, teaching subjects including math, computer science, and TJ/SAT prep. He emphasized learning underlying concepts behind course material and finding connections with other concepts to inspire joy in learning. 

In September 2021, Vishnu passed away at the age of 20. He worked with over 300 students through EduAvenues, and worked tirelessly to help students succeed in their academic journeys.

As the old saying goes, life is not measured by its length, but by its depth. Vishnu lived every single day to the fullest — touching the lives of more people in two decades than most people do in their lifetime. The Vishnu Murthy Foundation was created to honor the life of Vishnu Murthy. The Vishnu Murthy Foundation develops scholarship programs and social impact initiatives in the Washington D.C. Metro Area, at the University of Michigan, and in India. The Foundation hopes to transform the lives of young adults who share Vishnu’s core values and dreams to make the world a better and brighter place.

A portion of EduAvenues proceeds is donated to the Vishnu Murthy Foundation each year. If you would like to make a donation, you can do so here.
